Propaganda is information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, or a nation. During the 1930's propaganda was big because the Germans were trying to gain political power and make the Jews look bad. They had many posters and advertisements around during the time that were full of biased info. Many of the Jews like Anne had to hide so they weren't killed or taken to concentration camps where they would later be killed.
